Dear fellow opera lovers,

On October 31st I reported that WWUH's Real Player stream was suffering from a slight squeal and that WWUH was working with OperaCast to betatest a new Real Player stream. I am happy to report that that stream has now been unveiled. Unfortunately however this new stream is currently suffering from a hum. We have informed the appropriate station contacts.

With regard to WWUH's Windows Media Player stream, there is a peculiarity. Some of you may be experiencing some crackling. This is an intermittent problem with some Windows Media Player streams. It does NOT occur if you switch to Version 6.4 Windows Media Player. You may find the latter version by doing a search on your computer for the file called mplayer2.exe . Once you find it, please open that program. Then cut and paste into the File Open menu window the following: and click OK. You should find the stream now plays with no crackling. I'm firing off a message to our contact there right away to see if they can straighten this out. Good luck, and please let us know if 1) you experience the crackling and 2) whether the above suggested solution does the trick.

Happy listening,
